Vehicles with a 6speed automatic transmission may develop one or more of the following faults related to a broken 35R clutch wave plate inside the transmission: Illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P0716, P0776, P0717, P0777, P2714, P2715, and/or P02723, loss of reverse gear, slipping or harsh 3rd or 5th gear shift. Removal and dis-assembly of the transmission will be required to replace the broken 35R wave plate. It is also extremely important that all debris from the failed part be cleaned from the transmission while it is disassembled in order to try and prevent future problems.
The AC system may not blow cold at times. In many cases, replacement of the AC compressor has corrected this issue.

2007 Chevrolet Equinox RecallsPotential Fuel Leak from Fuel Tank Area
Certain vehicles originally sold in, or currently registered in, the states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma, or Texas are being recalled because the plastic supply or return port on the fuel pump module may crack, resulting in a fuel leak. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel pump module to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 12190.
Protection from head injury may not be sufficient for vehicles not equipped with optional roof rail air bags or an optional sunroof. Dealers will install energy absorbing foam to each of the a-pillar trim assemblies free of charge to resolve the concern.
The passenger side air bag may be deactivated inadvertently due to a sensor malfunction that detects occupant weight. Dealers will reprogram the seat's electronic control unit free of charge to resolve the concern.
